VISIBILITY
5'-15'

The rain run-off should be cleaned up by mid-week and there might be decent visibility due to low swell energy and tide-swing Wednesday and Thursday before the next storm pushes in by late Friday. With lobster season now open, boaters should keep an extra eye out for divers near the reefs and channel edges and divers always mark yourselves and area appropriately.

Visibility based on existing conditions and NOAA predicted swell and weather conditions at press time. Check up-to-date daily visibility/ conditions at the San Diego County Lifeguard info line: 619-221-8824.

Martin Keppeller and William Larson teamed up and 31.8 pounds for their 10 Largemouth Bass and earned themselves $2,635 in prize money. Taking second place, the team of Mike McLernon and Jerry Hobart totaled up 21.86 pounds with their limit for $1,190 in prize money.
